This very OLD ELGIN KEROSENE LANTERN was probably in the barn when our friend bought the place more than 30 years ago. It appears to be all original, even the glass which is marked "10" USA, but I can't guarantee it. It is pretty dusty and dirty. I vacuumed it off, but that's all the cleaning it got from me. This is a USED lantern. It seems in pretty good condtion, and I assume it works, since t is a bit of old fuel that I need to empty out of the reservoir. The fuel cap is present and t is a wick. The LEVERS TURN and LIFT as they should. The very top is a smidge bent. See photos. It is 17.5 INCHES to the top of the handle.

I don't know exactly how old this item is.

I do not profit from the sale of these items. I am helping an elderly friend liquidating an estate; tfore I cannot accept returns.

I am admittedly ignorant concerning most of these items. If I find I have listed something with an error or omission, I will do my best to correct the listing. ANY ERROR or OMISSION IS COMPLETELY UNINTENTIONAL .

I ship to USA addresses only. Please don't waste your time. Emails requesting international shipping will not be answered.

I accept PayPal, cashier's check, or money order. Cashier's checks or money orders will necessarily slow the transaction. I will ship the next business day after payment clears using USPS Priority Mail. Pay only actual shipping rates plus $2.00 handling.

Insurance is optional. Stated shipping charges do not include insurance. I do pack very well, however a lot of these things are fragile. Buyer must judge the risk.

I absolutely will contact you within 24 hours after auction ends.

Just in case you missed it up top, ALL SALES are FINAL .
